And Dada makes four.

Four is the magic number.
Four is the magic number.

This blog is mostly about my summer with my kids, but the summer wouldn’t be possible without Matty. Not only does he work his tail off so I can take this summer off of work, but when he’s home, he’s Super Dad. I know everyone says their husband is #1 Dad, especially around Father’s Day, but when it comes down to it, there’s only one #1 Dad — and sorry, other dads — it’s Matty. So we were all very excited when he had Friday off, and got to join us for one of our adventures. And on this grand occasion, we braved the Brockton Fair.

Brockton’s a little crime-y, but they more than make up for it with their town fair that includes a choo choo train ride, a bouncy castle, a super slide, the World’s Smallest Horse, a Snake Lady, a Spider Woman, a family circus (not Family Circus, that would be lame), and best of all, FRIED DOUGH NUGGETS. You will not see a photo of those, because I snarfed them down before photos could be taken. Here are the other great things at the fair that I did stop to take photos of (click on them to enlarge):

My kids have an unnatural love for bouncy castles. And when they go down the bouncy castle slide holding hands, I do too.
That pink raccoon is named Pink Raccoony and could be yours for the low price of $5 and some rudimentary plastic fishing rod skills.
Turns out my girl's a natural race car driver.

Luckily, George found a horse that liked him. He named it Daydee.

The guy running the Super Slide was a real buddy, and let us have a free 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th ride.

We didn't even really want the last two, but he insisted!

This was George's favorite ride, for unknown reasons.

Hazy and I in the Dizzy Dragons. I don't know how I got suckered into going on this godforsaken ride.

Watching aerial feats at the family circus. Only one of us is photo acting here.
Could not get George to sit down when this girl was doing her contortions.
You can never predict who George is gonna fall in love with. In this case, it was the child contortionist, Juliette.
All in all, a great day.

We have yet to plan next week’s adventures. Definitely open to suggestions, especially if they involve fried dough nuggets.

  1. There is some indoor water park in Danvers that others moms I know take their kids to on rainy or snowy days. I’m always up for joining you on a beach excursion, to Duxbury or Crane. A short hike in the Blue Hills might be manageable. Kimball’s Farm in Westford, duh. 🍦🍧⛳️
